Bing Satellites second album proper is a collection of improvised live recordings. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound.

The debut release from Kamin is a fantastic electronic journey. There is a nice mix on this album - from dark electronica with real "synth-y" synths and real drums to beautiful ambient landscapes. My description does this album no justice, so I would suggest you have a listen and judge for yourself!

The debut release on BFW from Hadrocodium Wui is of course a compilation of the best tracks from some of the last ten years. This is quite unique and therefore hard to define, but here goes...
